Undescended testicle!

Post by Fiona » Thu Mar 26, 2015 8:08 pm

Hi, I have today taken 5 two week old piglets for castration, only four were done successfully as one has an undescended testicle. As they were all intended to be sold as pets, this one obviously won't be and I am happy to keep him for next years sausages. I have only ever used castrated kunekune for meat and am wondering if there are any potential problems having an entire boar for meat, any thoughts please?
I am experienced in breeding and raising gloucester old spots for meat and never had them castrated, but only kept them up until 6-7 months, the Kune will take longer.
